Case study

Activity 2 Risk in your organisation

Timing: Allow 1 hour and thirty minutes for this activity.

Consider the risks that an organisation you know well is exposed to. It might be an organisation that you currently work for, or that you recently worked for, or one that you are familiar with.

If you are self-employed, the activity is still relevant to you since you should consider the risks you are exposed to given the nature of your business.

You may want to jot down some notes in the box below. Don’t forget to save them!

Discussion

How you answer this will clearly depend on the organisation you work for or the one you have focussed on for this activity. If you think carefully and work through the list of financial risks and financial-related risks (including operational risk) detailed in this free course, you may be surprised how exposed your organisation is to a variety of risks – even if your organisation is outside the private sector and/or small in size.
